    Do I need to purchase separate tickets for the park and the Disney Very Merriest After Hours?

    Hey there, Braulio! Thanks for stopping by planDisney to ask your Walt Disney World holiday happenings question. 

    You are coming to Walt Disney World at my favorite time of year! I love the holiday decorations, special treats, and especially the giant Gingerbread House at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa! There is also a super cute Gingerbread Carousel at Disney’s Beach Club Resort that I can’t wait to see in just a few days! 

    When planning your December trip, you will want to figure out which day you are planning to attend the Very Merriest After Hours event and purchase those tickets. If you plan to visit a theme park earlier that day (and I would definitely plan to do this, and NOT Magic Kingdom), you will need a separate admission ticket for that. It CAN be one of the days of a multi-day ticket that you have purchased and linked to your MyDisneyExperience

    Since the Very Merriest After Hours event doesn’t even begin until 9:00pm, you have an entire day to explore another park (and maybe catch a nap). I have heard great things about the events that have happened so far, and guests seem happy with the treats and the wait times for attractions. Don’t miss Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks Show at 11:15pm. 

    Thanks again for letting us assist with your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Happy Traveling,

GAWRSH! Hiya pals! I am a Goofy-loving mom of 2, who is married to my real-life Prince Charming. My family supports my passion for all things Disney. Walt Disney World was my very first vacation, when I was just 3 months old, and I recently completed my 73rd trip to a Disney location! I have been fortune enough to parasail high above the Disney Fantasy, attend opening day of Batuu, snorkel in the lagoon at Disney's Aulani, and SO MUCH MORE! I can't wait to help you plan your Disney vacation!
